The first eilive event is just weeks away!

As we move into spring, the first eilive event is just weeks away! Preparations are well underway. We’re looking forward to seeing the first visitors through the door at 10am, on the 25th April at Bristol’s Ashton Gate. You can find directions on how to get to the venue here:

From Bristol we head on down to the Farnborough Five on the 27th April, then refreshed by the May Bank Holiday we will be at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry on the 3rd, followed by Manchester’s Event City on the 9th. On the 16th May we arrive in London at Olympia before the final stop on the eilive tour at Elland Road, in Leeds on 18th May.

We will have a vast array of exhibitors, many of whom will be offering great deals and vouchers for publicans on show days. From beer to gin, street food to bar snacks, marketing to training, there will be plenty to explore at eilive!
